Miracles Club - WORK!
Friday

Father John Misty 4:00 pm • Main Stage

Crystal Stilts 5:15 pm • Neumos Stage

Youth Lagoon 6:30 pm • Main Stage

Thee Oh Sees 7:45 pm • Main Stage

Trust 9:00 pm • Neumos Stage

Keyboard Kid 9:30 pm • Vera Stage

Blue Sky Black Death & Nacho Picasso 10:45 pm • Vera Stage

The Miracles Club 12:30 am • Neumos Stage

John Tejada 1:30 am • Neumos Stage

Morelike Father John Shitting Buckets of Rain, amirite? No, but assuming this clears up, get there early for J.Tillman's post-Fleet Foxes jaded folk rocker schtick. Other highlights of these highlights--all good, though--include garage rock super freaks Thee Oh Sees, who apparently decapitated Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis at some fancy socks store downtown last night, and Portland live house extravaganza Miracles Club.

Saturday

Stephanie 2:00 pm • Vera Stage

Pollens 3:00 pm • Neumos Stage

Spoek Mathambo 3:30 pm • Main Stage

Beat Connection 4:45 pm • Main Stage

Onuino 5:15 pm • Neumos Stage

Pony Time 6:45 pm • Cha Cha Stage

Grimes 7:30 pm • Main Stage

Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz 9:00 pm • Main Stage

Major Lazer 10:30 pm • Main Stage

John Maus 11:00 pm • Vera Stage

Diplo 1:30 am • Neumos Stage

Saturday looks good to me, as they say. And you wouldn't do bad to just camp out at the Main Stage, for Spoek Mathambo's globally bent beats, Grimes' wispy electro-pop, and Major Lazer's dizzy dance-hall jokes. John Maus' music strikes me as terrible (oh, intentionally so? how arty and provocative, you crazy academic, you!), but he supposedly punches himself a lot live, so there's that. And beyond the Neumos side-trips recommended here--such as Pollens' smart wo-pop reconfigurations--you could also duck in there for Riegnwolf and Psychic Paramount if you need to be guitar rocked a little harder than this schedule allows.

Sunday

Dam Funk 2:15 pm • Main Stage

Cloud Nothings 3:30 pm • Main Stage

Blouse 4:15 pm • Neumos Stage

Haunted Horses 5:45 pm • Cha Cha Stage

Dude York 8:20 pm • Vera Stage

Trash Talk 10:15 pm • Neumos Stage

SPACEGHOSTPURRP 11:15 pm • Neumos Stage

Don't Talk To The Cops! 12:25 pm • Neumos Stage

You'll notice this is my least busy itinerary of the weekend, and it's on a day when the shows start hours earlier. This is your day of rest, I guess. If you do have it in you for one more day of Block Partying, though, be sure to catch Haunted Horses' awesome goth punk drone racket--seriously, one of the best bands going in Seattle right now--and then stick around for the rap blowout at Neumos at the end of the night, not only to see Don't Talk to the Cops do their reliably fun and lively routine, but also to see if Spaceghostpurrp is really as terrible as he seems once you strip away the obscuring lo-fi tape hiss.
